  4. For the fourth step, you need to plug the smartphone to the laptop. Wait till “Added!!” is on the screen and also till you spot a number colored yellow, which is the COM port. Install the drivers again if you don’t notice those; or just make use of a different USB port. If all is in order, then opt for the following files:
    – .tar with CODE in its name (the button that will open it: PDA);
    – the file that has MODEM in its name (click on Phone to get it to launch);
    – the file wearing CSC in its name (click on CSC);
    .pit (click on PIT to gain access to this file).
